I'm going to be storying my pressure washer outdoors in a shed during
the winter. Will there be a problem with this? Will freezing water
breaking anything inside? If so, what do I do to prevent that? Thanks.
I believe most recommend that you pour an antifreeze solution into the
pump when storing such units. Supposedly it not only prevents damage
due to freezing, but stops corrosion. At least that is what my unit
I wouldnt use normal green antifreeze, they make one that is pink (and
in a clear bottle) and used in rv's etc. My manual stated something
different about the two in the pink stuff was the way to go. I will
look to see what the differences were.
You should run out the gas or use Sta-bil.
You must winterize the pump. Purchase RV antifreeze or Windshield
antifreeze solvent. Rig a funnel to the water input of the washer.
With ignition off slowly crank the engine/pump until you see the
antifreeze come out of the outlet. You are done.
we use stabil in the gas, take the pressure line off and blow
the water out of it. pour anti freeze into the pump and spin it over
till it comes out the other side. ..... or you could just run it with
antifreeze till it comes out the pressure hose.i would also look at the
oil in the pump to be sure its not milky with water.change if necc.
That is bullshit. What do you think is in your car?!?! We've treated the
pressure washer where I work on occasion (when the people doing didn't know
any cheaper) with automotive antifreeze. It can't hurt it.
